Helen Gildfind lives in Melbourne and has been published in Australia and overseas.
‘Quarry’ was completed as part of a short-story collection with the generous support of an Australia Council Grant. This collection is seeking publication, and was recently a finalist in the St Lawrence (unpublished) book award run by Black Lawrence Press (New York).
Helen is currently working on her first novel, which she began under the mentorship of Andrea Goldsmith, whose insightful feedback on ‘Quarry’ was gratefully received.
